BACOLOD to ILOILO / ILOILO to BACOLOD Ferry Schedules and Fares

This is a compilation of all the ferry schedules and fares from Bacolod to Iloilo and Iloilo to Bacolod. I want to make it easier for people to compare ship rates and departure times. My sister travels between Bacolod and Iloilo every month for her curricular activities. She rides the ferry at BREDCO port and the trip will take around 2 hours or less depending on the boat.

Since she was already familiar with the trips, I’ve asked her to take note of the schedules and fares every time she travels. But I cannot put all that work on her, however, so I will also check for any changes myself when I can. There are four ferries to choose from and they are OceanJet, SuperCat 2GO, Weesam Express, and FastCat – all of whom have daily trips.

The total fare depends on which ferry you take. The more expensive ones are the ones with better accommodations. I’ve also included the terminal fees for the Bacolod and Iloilo ports. These are required to enter the terminal.

Vehicle Freight Rates

Those with private vehicles, FastCat has their own rates which you can find their website.

Port Facilities

Both the Bacolod and Iloilo ports have restrooms and a convenience store for travelers if ever you decide to buy snacks or drinks before the trip. At the Iloilo port, there is also an ATM machine.

Number of ferries

You may or may not have noticed that the ferry schedules for OceanJet and Weesam from Bacolod to Iloilo are the same as their schedules from Iloilo to Bacolod. That is because they both have two ships that alternate between the two ports. While SuperCat 2GO and FastCat only have one ship that goes back and forth.
